Cannot Install Software/Games

By jonhenri_roman ·
I'm trying to install my copy of 3D Studio Max but I get an error that says that there is a DLL file missing that is needed for the installation. When I check the contents of the disk I can see the cdll file that is "supposed" to be missing. The same thing occurs when I'm trying to install some of my games. I've tried everything that comes to mind. Please help?

Does it give you the option to continue with the installation "ignore" the error? If so then write down the name of the files that are missing and place them where they belong and see if it works. Also try copying the cd to your HD and see if it can run from there.

Good luck

copy the dll to your system32 dirctory then regiser it with command "regsvr32 [game].dll" than try the install. where I have writen [game] enter the real name of the dll.

Are you using an administration account of the machine. If you are not an Adminstartor of the machine you probably won't be able to install it.

Mosty of these things only allow so many installations, have you used them all up; this on't get it installed but it might get you an answer.

which version of max?

it is not a game at all it is a 3d modelling and animation studio.

if you are wanting the game engine then you need gmax not 3d studio max

to get past the missing dll error, copy the cdrom onto your hard drive in a temporary location then run the install from there.

I recommend u to format ur hard drive and then install the game, if it does not work then the DLL file in the CD must be corrupted(tell a friend to install the game on his/her PC to test the game). Try the latter first.
